Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence
The University of Saskatchewan’s Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence is a world-class complex of field and science laboratories that brings together under one roof every link of the livestock production chain. Modelling all aspects of raising livestock on the Canadian Prairies, it is a powerhouse for innovative research, teaching and industry engagement. Its reach goes far beyond the Canadian Prairies. Building on a strong network of partnerships, researchers strive to improve livestock production across Canada and around the globe.
The LFCE encompasses everything from forage development, grazing management and environmental sustainability to cattle reproduction, cow-calf management and feedlot health, growth and productivity. In addition to beef cattle research and education, the LFCE is a centre for bison reproductive work, vaccine development and disease control, and nutrition.
There is nothing quite like the LFCE anywhere else in the world.
